I am a newbie trying to make Samba work in my small home network. I have 
configured the Linux machine (RH 7.2, Enigma) as the Domain PDC and log 
on server, updated and synchronized the smbpasswd file with passwd file. 
Yet, when I attempt to log on from windows 9.x machine I get either of 
the following messages.

1. computer name invalid
2. incorrect password or log on server has denied access to you.

when I test the configuration by typing
1. smbclient -NL //win.9x machine, I get all the shares listed.
2. smbclient -NL //linux server, I get the following error message.

session setup failed: ERRSRV - ERRbadpw (Bad password - name/password 
pair in a Tree Connect or Session Setup are invalid.).

All tests on win 9.x machines are OK.

Linux server does not let me set up a  session .

Where am I going wrong??

Global section of my smb.conf is listed below.
        remote announce =
        interfaces =
        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
        domain master = True
        printing = lprng
        dns proxy = No
        hosts equiv = /etc/hosts
        protocol = NT1
        logon path = \\%L\Profiles\%U
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_SNDBUF=8192 SO_RCVBUF=8192
        wins support = true
        hosts allow = 127.
        password server = *
        security = domain
        domain logons = Yes
        unix password sync = Yes
        server string = Samba Server
        workgroup = MOTHERINDIA.COM
        netbios name = SHREE
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        guest account = pcguest
        os level = 65

Please help.
